interview - redemption song

"Can you remember the time when Bob Marley composed REDEMPTION SONG?"
"We were touring a lot in California these days. I think Wia Lindo* had a lot to do with that song, you know. He wrote a lot of lyrics to give Bob the completion of that song.
(*Wia = "Earl Wia Lindo", one of the keyboard players of Bob Marley and the Wailers. Do you know our Earl Wia Lindo interview?)

"And he also composed with him the several live segments you can see on tapes where Wia is with him playing guitar, you know. Bob was very accepting anything that sounded outstanding, lyrically, you know. And he would incorporate it into his own song writing and songs."
